The first draw of the contemporary game Lotto 6 aus 49 was held in Hamburg on 9 October 1955. Currently the game is organized by the German lotto and toto block, a corporation uniting 16 regional operators.

The greatest winning was drawn on 7 October 2006: a jackpot in the amount of 37, 688, 291.80 Euros.
The lottery tickets are forms providing an option for filling in up to 12 combinations of six numbers each, within the range from 1 to 49. In the bottom left corner of the form the serial number, the last number of which is called “Supernumber” is printed in advance, as it also takes part when the winnings are determined. Clients may freely select the form to fill in, which practically makes the “Supernumber” selectable as well.

 Upon the submission of a filled lottery form, the terminal of the licensed operator issues a receipt containing the bet numbers, a unique bet number and barcode. The receipt serves as proof for making the bet. The unique bet number is recorded in the database of EUDORADO.COM irrespective of the selected mode of storing the receipts.

 The game consists in drawing 6 balls out of a total of 49. Among the main six numbers a seventh additional one is drawn as well and it is also included in the determination of winnings. In order to win within the highest first category, a coincidence needs to occur between the subsequently drawn "Supernumber" from balls numbered 0 to 9 with the last number of the serial number of the lottery ticket.
The winnings are divided into eight categories as follows:

1:15 537 573
1:2 330 636
